Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey has been grabbing the headlines even days after it finally aired. In the tell-all interview, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made some shocking revelations as to why they stepped back from their royal roles, and moved to the USA. They alleged that a member of the royal family had raised concern over what their unborn baby Archie’s skin tone would be. Now, days after the interview, Prince William has broken his silence.
Prince William has now addressed these claims and said that the Royals are not a racist family. According to a report in BBC, William, the Duke of Cambridge, was asked by a reporter during a visit to a school in Stratford on Thursday, “Is the Royal Family a racist family, sir?” Prince William answered, “We’re very much not a racist family.” He was also asked whether he has spoken to Prince Harry after the interview with Oprah, to which Prince Harry said, “No, I haven't spoken to him yet but I will do."
This comes after a formal statement was released on Tuesday by the Buckingham Palace on behalf of the Queen. The statement read, "The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan. The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning”.
The statement further read, “While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members." ALSO READ: Prince Charles To Travel To The US To Strip Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Of Their Titles Post Oprah Interview?
